Air Products Steam Methane Reformer
Air Products retrofitted each of its two steam methane reformers (SMRs), located within an existing refinery at Port Arthur, Texas, to separate CO2 from the process gas stream. Carbon dioxide capture capacity is at around 1 Mtpa when both plants are fully operational. The captured CO2 is transported to oil fields in Texas for enhanced oil recovery. More than 3 million tonnes of CO2 has been captured since the facilities became operational in 2013.
